bought as a gift- awesome

Works great. GF hasn't complained and that's all that matters to me. They look great too.

Multifunctional product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 4"
    Weight: 121 lbs

This buff is great, true color, the material is high quality, keeps my neck warm if it is cold outside; I commonly use it to cover my head when riding bicycle, so when I wear off my helmet I had no disheveled hair anymore :).

One size fits all pretty much. Buffs are cool, but at the same time, I feel like they're so simple that I could have just made myself one - but I don't know how. My wife feels this way as well. But we got them anyway. Mostly for sun protection during a hike across Spain.

is the imperial buff a different size from the pewter and stone colors. They are shown in different shapes. Are they all tubular?

They are all the same size and shape! The imperial one is just shown the way it looks when worn for a face mask! All these buffs are tubular! They are awesome, I have one and wear it all the time!

One of the greatest purchases ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought it to keep sun of my neck in summer. It's not really a hot weather item, but whenever it rained or got a little colder the buff was perfect.
Without doubt my favorite item of winter gear, and perhaps my favorite clothing item. Keeps the warmth in from my breath but is still easy to breath. So stretchy and stays in place however I position it. Really great in any cold from light fall winds to zero degree hikes.
I've used it over my ears like a headband, just on my neck when working in the summer and fall, and mostly from my neck to nose like a half-balaclava. Most convenient, and super thin so i can stick it in my pocket. I always have it in my bag. I recently lost my black one so I ordered two more with print. I'll see how those go. Plus, I've had it for 2-plus years and show no real signs of wear. Maybe it's not as tight as it once was, but never falls down when I need it.

Worth the $20

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When I first put this on, I was skeptical about how well it was going to hold up....but, it kept my face warm and dry even during a full day on the mountain with snow and below zero temps. Did have to let it dry out midday, but I was pleasantly surprised for a 20 buck piece of fabric.

Really awesome

Best gaitor I ever had! Warm, Light and comfortable. 5 Stars!

Wish I had thought of it...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What more can be said? This thing is versatile – I’ve worn it as a balaclava, neck gaiter, hat, and even a sling. It’s kept my face warm on alpine climbs, and protected my neck from sunburn on desert outings and glacier crossings. Light, comfortable, and versatile – what more could you ask for? I'd suggest you pick a light color if you plan to use it in seasons other than winter. My only gripe – 20 bucks for a tube of stretchable fabric? Yes, I wish I’d thought of it…

Really like it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I like the several ways you can use it, not just for sports you can just use it in common days, real good to keep me warm and the material really good

Just ok

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ended up using this buff for skiing...it was ok for keeping me warm but the material is a bit flimsy and wrinkles easily.
Also, I used two neck warmers...this one for my neck, plus another one on top of it: the Airhole DryTech Airtube for my neck/face/nose...the combination was warm, but I don't think this buff would have been enough by itself.

Worked well. Sometimes hard to keep in place but easy to readjust.

Very nice for hiking

I was a little skeptical of this at first but it works great for hiking. Nice and cool so my hot head doesn't over heat

Average at best for ski applications

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

After using it for several days it became stretched around chin and mouth. After several hours of skiing the material was saturated with moisture from breathing when using to shield my face in 25 degree weather. Worked well at shielding the neck area. Overall I think it is over priced at $20.

Fantastic Face Protection

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I bought a Buff after my brother showed up wearing one, flaunted all the ways to wear it, and insisted I get one. I did and it's amazing how effective something so simple is. I don't need to explain all the ways you can wear it - you can find that on their website. What I will say is that the Buff is the perfect material: stretchy enough to stay in place but not tight; thin enough to be breathable but enough of a layer to protect your face from windchill. It never occurred to me to wrap my face but now that I have a Buff it seems so obvious. And the Buff is definitely the best way to do it.

How much does it weigh?

Great for the weight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I was a little skeptical when receiving my Buff - it seemed awfully lightweight to use while skiing. However, I was really impressed with its ability to block wind and cold while being INCREDIBLY light and easy to store.

To provide context - I generally don't like having things covering my face, and only do so when skiing to protect from wind/snow. I haven't used a fleece turtle fur or something similar in years. So, I probably have a higher tolerance than most. However, I used my Buff in heavy snow conditions at 8-15 degrees F and it was all I needed. I could pull it down while I was getting a heavier workout without wind in the trees, and pull it back over my face when I emerged onto a more open trail. Great thing, too, is that I could keep it in my coat to pull on if a nice day turned windy without adding much bulk.

It's microfiber so that helps with the smell, but after 4 days of skiing without a bath, it definitely needed it...just from the sweat, built up moisture from my breathing directly onto it for a couple days, and being taken off wet and not always fully drying.

Amazing warmth to weight ratio.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Buffs are great for backcountry pursuits and any other outdoor activity where minimizing weight is important. I keep one stashed in my backpacking bag and another in my ski bag for when the wind picks up or when the sun gets too intense for sunscreen alone. For super cold climates, go with the fleece or merino wool version, but for temps 30F and above the thin microfiber material is plenty warm. In a pinch Buffs can be used as an emergency beanie, sweatband or mosquito barrier. All in all, I've found Buffs to be a handy, versatile backcountry essential.

In the buff

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this! I just ordered the simple black color. It is great for skiing in the winter and wearing as a headband in the summer. Really thin, breathable and stretchy.

Great sun protection

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I've got the white and primarily use it for fly fishing in Utah. Keeps the sun off my neck and face/ears on sunny days. Also serves as a great hat when the sun drops in the early spring or late fall. Soft, comfy and stays in my fly fishing pack so I don't leave home without it. Washes up well.

Regular buff vs half buff

Regular buff vs half buff

Here is a picture of the 2 compared. The half buff is about the same size as most neck gaiters. Still useful but you can't do nearly as much with it.
